With the Airbnb & Holiday Letting craze well & truly unleashed on Cairns, I thought there is no better time to shed some light on what it takes to style the perfect holiday home!
Having styled various Airbnb’s & having been an Airbnb Host myself, I have found the following to be the most effective when creating holidays vibes for others.
Style To Location
The styling of your holiday home should reflect the location & surroundings - creating an experience for your guests that is well balanced.
Keeping a common style & mix of colour and textures through out the home will ensure your guests feel relaxed and at ease each time they return. E.g. a beach side holiday home may feature light pieces of furniture & coastal neutrals like tan, pastel greens & deep blues.
A Practical Space
Ensuring your holiday home is functional is vital. From the right amount of seating to the way the furniture is placed - keep your lounge conversational, as your guests are there to spend time together, chatting and entertaining. Remember less is more - keep the spaces decluttered & choose furnishings with ‘easy cleaning’ in mind.
Let There Be Light
Good lighting is the perfect combination of natural and artificial - achieving this is everything, as lighting has the ability to effect our mood; a light, brightly lit space can enhance positivity & good thoughts - exactly what you want your guests to feel during and after their stay!
